The hotel is located in the city of Zug, CH. In terms of location it can't be faulted. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest train station and there is good shopping and entertainment within walking. For joggers and walkers you are maybe 2 minutes from the lake. I didn't drive but it appeared that there was parking... More

I used the hotel Ochsen many times while working in Zug. It is in Kolinplatz in the old town and opposite the Zytturm (clock tower). The rooms are comfortable and kept reasonably up to date despite the old age of the hotel. I once had the absolute top room at the back, overlooking someone's roof terrace full of pot plants.

Very nice hotel extremely centrally located in Zug; walking distance for most things there. This was my second visit and I requested the same room as for my first visit (view of church and square), it was not possible so I got a different room - just as nice!! Each room with consistent quality but kind of it's own personality.... More

A wonderful little hotel in the heart of Zug. As one would expect the room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, and staff was particularly helpful when my German faltered and needed to revert to English. I was there on business and needed a quiet place to sleep and the Ochsen Zug fit my requirements perfectly.

Stayed at the Ochsen a number of times and always receive a warm welcome. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. High quality food available in the restaurant and bar. Only downside can be the church bells going off seemingly all night (told they are quiet between 12 and 6 now).

The hotel was well situated within the Old Town area of Zug, close to the lake. Lots of good restaurants around the area. One to two minutes away from a bus stop that takes you to Zug Banhoff, Baar, etc. It's also a short 5-10 minute walk to the Zug Banhoff, which has direct connections to Zurich HB/Flughafen.

Nice rooms, wide enough. Single bed is good for a single person. Bathroom was pretty big WiFi was quick, views and location were magnificent Breakfast and Diner were really good (extremely good). The bar however closes early and is closed on weekly basis (I believe saturdays it's closed completely)

Great hotel, great service, great restaurant, very comfortable location. Personфlly I enjoyed time and will be happy to come back. It is also old fashioned and it is something special. Also it is very fashion design outside and inside, shows the history of the hotel.

First off, Zug is amazing. This was my first visit and I was there on business. The city and it's residents are beautiful and friendly. This property sits in one of the most unique locations in the city. It's where old town starts and the lake/watchtower is right across the street. I found the room delightful.
